About Me

The name 'Salty Sea Dog' derives from a love of being salty, sandy and sun-kissed. The aim is to capture that feeling in all my photographs.

I’m Nick Holton, the man behind the photos. As well as being a photographer, I'm also a part time surfer & artist...and full-time hater of socks.

Having lived in Sydney for over 7 years, I'm still struck with its natural beauty on a daily basis. I'm completely and utterly in love with the ocean; the waves, the marine life and the beaches. I've always been obsessed with photography and found my calling in 2017 when I invested in a drone that has allowed me to capture what I love from a whole new perspective.

All photos on this site are available on request, printed on a high quality stock and framed by local professionals and signed by me, with love.

I also keep a travel blog (www.saltyseadogtravel.com) and, despite working 9-5 in Sydney, love to get away on adventures as regularly as possible (much to the bemusement of my boss!).

Thanks to my parents, I’ve always had a passion for travelling and my ambition, set in 2013, is to visit a new country every year for the rest of my life (edit: let's just ignore 2020 & 2021!). I love to see my photography brighten up a home and hope you enjoy watching my collection grow as I aim to fulfil my ambition.
